- Runner Friendly Community application: Becky will submit the application to RRCA online about April 15th in order to meet the May 1st deadline. She will include letters of support from Susie Fagan, Mike Amyx, Jessica Moniger, Kent Dobbins and herself. The city meets and exceeds the criterion. We expect to get a response in 60 days.
- Thanksgiving Day Run: Dee is ready to plan this year’s event. She is currently researching award choices for example, gloves, socks, backpacks, bags or t-shirts. Members should be ready to provide suggestions and feedback at the next meeting. Early tasks include reserving Woodlawn School and acquiring a parade permit from the city.
- Club social: Suggestions were given for a potluck style picnic. Many scheduling conflicts precipitated delaying plans until the May meeting. The best common date was August 7th. Janet will research site availability with a time frame of 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. for the event.
- Clock volunteer needed: Gene would like a club member to supervise the use of our clock at the St. John’s run the weekend of May 14-15.
- Race management: Gene asked the members to confirm for him that the majority of runLawrence members are not in a position to provide race management. Members present reassured him that we prefer he refer people to our extensive list of persons who do provide that service when he receives such a request. He will personally speak with a local group that has been the source of many such inquiries.
- Review of recent events: Members shared their experiences as participants. The Dam Run received positive reviews. Stacy had a bad timing chip that failed to record her start time for the Rock the Parkway Run. She said there were no mile markers for the 5K. Rock the Parkway had 6,400 participants and was organized by Troy Fitzgerald. The half marathon was well presented. Greg participated in the Kanopolis Rockin K trail run, a favorite and popular event that he does every year. Some members plan to sign up for the Olathe Oz Marathon.
- KU Wellness Fair April 20: Gene and Alicia will work together to man an informational table that features our club. Some of Becky’s students may assist. Members who would like to be involved should contact Alicia or Gene.
- The meeting adjourned.
